Tacita Dean by
British video artist and filmmaker Tacita Dean is admired for her patient and sensitive approach to her subject matter, explored in conversation with Hans Ulrich Obrist in this collection of in-depth interviews. They discuss her film portraits of architectural structures and personalities, her fervent collecting and reworking of analogue material--postcards, four-leaf clovers, albumen prints--and the things that have informed and influenced her artistic output over the past two and a half decades.
Analogue, Drawings 1991-2006 by
Over the past 15 years, Tacita Dean has created an impressive body of work in film, photography, and drawing. Her slow-moving projections--which border on the meditative--present a panorama in which fleeting moments come to a standstill. Her meticulous framing and awareness of the flow of filmic time evoke eerily specific atmospheres, and her films provide the creative impulse for remarkable work in other media. Analogue, the first methodical study and graphic presentation of her drawings, gathers not just those on paper but also on blackboards and alabaster and in photographs, and it considers them in light of her roots as a painter.
"Dean is a reluctant but determined activist. Some of her friends call her Formidable—the French word meaning both terrific and awe-inspiring. Her friend the novelist Jeffrey Eugenides says that the nickname suits her 'unstoppable personality.'"
